The Bucks who have been an amazing regular season team, have had a tumultuous time in the playoffs for the last two seasons. While they did take a risk by trading away future picks and starting guard Eric Bledsoe for Jrue Holiday, it has certainly paid off for Giannis & Co. With a much better perimeter defense and chance creation, the Bucks have become a challenge for the best teams.

Their risk has also resulted in an appearance at the Finals for the first time 47 years. Given all the injuries this post-season, this might be the best opportunity the Bucks will get to win a title.

The Phoenix Suns meanwhile have risen from the ashes. With the addition of Chris Paul and Jae Crowder, the Suns immediately were touted as a playoff team, but championship contender seemed far-fetched.

The Suns have defied all of these expectations and have dominated the best of the best. Given how well they have played in both ends of the floor, Phoenix have shown that they are a complete team. This finals matchup is certainly a must-watch and promises to be a blockbuster.
